Boondocking and Internet

Current Temperature:  57 degrees

Current Location: Ellsworth, Maine

Current Campground: Seawall Campground Acadia National Park

I will keep this short as we are sitting in a Laundromat waiting for clothes to dry.  One of the problems with camping, especially boondocking, is the lack of internet opportunities.  No, we do not have a hotspot.  If we were to do this all year maybe we would invest in a hotspot.

We have been in Acadia National Park for a week now and have accumulated so many memories and thoughts that it may be impossible to relay even a fraction of them.  This little part of Maine is incredible and will be hard to leave tomorrow as we head to the White Mountains in New Hampshire (where, by the way, it is even colder!)

At this posting, I do not have any of my many photos and will post later in more detail based on photos.  Each photo will tell the story of our memories here.

Northward Bound this Summer

I said we had a plan!  And what an adventurous plan it is.  At this writing our summer will consist of approximately 3500 miles, at least 12 reserved campgrounds, hiking, swimming, canoeing, train riding (and dinner in a train car, if Lesa gets her way) and of course lots of campfires and marshmallows.  I will be in Photography Heaven if the sites are true to reality.

Our first stop will be Acadia National Park in Maine.  We will be staying at Acadia for a week.  According to the following site, we will have more than enough to see and do.  Besides, this is a beautiful site even if you don’t get to travel there.  Check out the photograph gallery.  Breathtaking!

We will be staying at Seawall Campground http://www.acadiamagic.com/seawall-campground.html , on the southwest end of the Mount Desert Island. Bar Harbor is on the other side of the island, but a little distance won’t keep us from heading over for a Maine Lobster meal! And, oh, all the things to see and do between Seawall and Bar Harbor. So exciting.

Next stop……….Covered Bridge Campground in Conway, New Hamshire.
